For unity environment, I know it is /usr/share/pixmaps/flags + change setting org.gnome.libgnomekbd.indicator to true, which is totally successful.

But for Gnome-shell ,both default and classic, system cannot finds the flags and displays the "picture not found" picture instead.

So where is the Gnome-shell directory for keyboard indicator flag ? Does it exist?

Copy flags picture into /usr/share/pixmaps/flags and name it - us-symbolic.png.

It depends on the indicator used, usually it is in ~/.icons or ~/.icons/flags. Take a detailed look also in this question:
